Re: Rafters Pub (OOCs)
Geez totally lost track of this game. Sorry all. I assume that the GM's cold is over by now. 😂

Re: Rafters Pub (OOCs)
I do that sometimes myself, then wonder where the hell the week/month went.

I was just getting ready to put up a post tomorrow saying that I was closing down the game because no one was posting (including me)... would have given it a week before deleting it.

On with the show!

Re: Rafters Pub (OOCs)
There doesn't seem to be enough interest left in this game to keep it going, so unless there's a huge outcry against it, I'll be deleting this game on Sunday.

Re: Rafters Pub (OOCs)
Or maybe not...

I distinctly remember writing a post  for what you see when you open the door, and yet it isn't there! I'm baffled. I know sometimes I write a post in my head, like when I'm trying to go to sleep at night, and then FORGET to actually post it. And sometimes I'll write a post and go to post it and the server somewhere along the way is down and it doesn't go through. When that happens, I copy it to a file for later. That doesn't seem to be the case here (or if it is, I forgot about it and even forgot where I filed it).

There was just too much detail for me to have NOT written it. Some of it I've forgotten, I'm sure, but I'll try to reconstruct it.

In any case, I kept waiting for someone else to post... and all along you were waiting for ME to post, but, in my head, I'd already posted!

As I tell the players in my other games, if you are waiting for me to post for over two days, especially over three days, send me a PM to remind me you are waiting. Or, better yet, just keep posting!

Re: Rafters Pub (OOCs)
I expected that you were waiting for more than just the 2 players to post. I was saddened to see no more than my post and one other (and both directed at neither of us who did post, so hard to react to). :(

This is always a quandary for me; I don't want to overpost and stomp on all the rest of the players, so I want to give plenty of time for people to react/respond, etc... but then, if no one does, I forget to check-in and post some more.

Yeah, there's always that.

Shoul have known better and posted anyway.

My excuse is that I was on a leave-of-absence due to work and other RL issues.

Back now.

Doesn't seem to be enough interest left in this game, so it's probably time to delete it.

I was hoping to find out what we found up the stairs.

Well, I'm still being led around by a rope... And still trying to figure out how to talk like a sailor. 'Salty dog' only goes so far!

Re: Rafters Pub (OOCs)
Hello all.  It looks like the current scene might be a bit awkward to just show up in the middle of.  Any ideas for adding a new character without waiting months for play-by-post posting rates?

Re: Rafters Pub (OOCs)
We're in the presence of a powerful Syrne artifact (or so the legends say), so that would be the 'simplest' way to bring you into the scene.

The harder way would involve a convoluted backstory about wandering the countryside and stumbling across the invisible cathedral all on her own.

Re: Rafters Pub (OOCs)
Had a short discussion with the GM, and apparently said Syrne artifact is doing strange things to Fate in the area.

As a Strega with the Curious hubris, I obviously have to go take a look.

"The stairs are right there to either side of you!" Anders calls back down.


I did edit that post. :p

Re: Rafters Pub (OOCs)
link to a message in this game
Ok, seriously, pockets were originally a type of large pouch worn a bit lower on the thigh and under a skirt, with a hidden slit to reach a hand through.  What the hell is up with modern women's fashion having no pockets?


Also, I have a physical sorte deck IRL, kickstarter loot, and I actually pulled this draw.  Surprised the hell out of me too.  Sure, the deck is just a prop, but it's hilarious that I pulled cards relevant to the current situation/discussion.

It feels really wierd double-posting IC like that, but I'm available to post and there's that two-day rule.

Re: Rafters Pub (OOCs)
The Two-Day Posting rule is mainly for when others posting gets a bit hectic. Without it, things can grind to a halt. And it's just to let you know that I may post for you in those situations.

Re: Rafters Pub (OOCs)
Did I misunderstand the scene? I thought there are displays for known Syrne, plus displays for each of the major (ie base book) sorceries? Are there, indeed, displays for more sorceries than that?

Re: Rafters Pub (OOCs)
Yes, there were more displays than just the core rule book sorceries. The various stations alternated between a Syrne type and a sorcery type. That means there are 12 different sorceries represented... if that is, in fact, what they are.
